Racial and Ethnic History Tour of Charlottesville

Join Charlene Green, with the Office of Human Rights at the City of Charlottesville, to take a tour of some important locations in Charlottesville’s racial and ethnic history. This tour examines the racial and ethnic history of Charlottesville with a focus on the areas of court Square, University of Virginia, Vinegar Hill, and the Daughters of Zion Cemetery. Participants will learn about how this history has shaped our physical community and continues to influence us today on location in the spaces and places of history.

The group will travel between sites on a bus provided by JAUNT. This bus is fully accessible. However, weather permitting, portions of the tour will take place outside at each of the sites. If you have questions about accessibility at specific sites please contact CNE directly.

In response to feedback from our previous excursion, we will be hosting a facilitated discussion following the tour at CNE, from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. We invite any participants wishing to discuss their reactions to the tour, and how they expect it to influence their work, during this time. (If you would like to bring a bagged lunch, you can leave it in our fridge during the tour.)

Registered participants will meet at CNE at 8:30 a.m. The bus will depart promptly at 8:45 a.m.

Due to limited space, we are only accepting registrations the board and staff of current CNE-member organizations at this time.

American Sign Language interpreters or other communication access accommodations are available upon request. Please submit any accommodations requests to Andrew Robinson, Program Manager, 434-951-9042 or
